Yes, that's it exactly, Angela. The laws of karma are inextricably tied to the creator. Souls descend from and return back to God. God is everything, the creator of all.

Well, I guess I just don't understand what God is in your mind. You described it as an ocean from which we are drops. How did you even start believing in 'God'?
I don't understand others' concepts of God either. Some people see God as a Santa Claus-like man in time and space on a big throne in the clouds somewhere with a fluffy beard and I can't understand that at all. I used the ocean as simply an analogy to illustrate that soul is made in God's image, much like a drop of an ocean. It's also difficult to describe what God is when it's not something you can see with your physical eyes.

I have believed in God for as long as I can remember. I was raised in the Christian church and even though from a very young age (say, 8,9) I was suspicious of the religion, and hated going to church so much that it often made me literally physically ill, I always believed in God. I spent a lot of time as a child doing what I would describe as contemplating the existance of God. I had to attend church as long as I lived with my parents but from the moment I left for college I never returned to the church, except maybe once or twice. My belief in God has never waivered and I have always tried to commune with God in some way (through prayer, meditation, etc) and the spiritual practice is what has changed over the years.

I am not familiar with him but from the link you shared I agree with a lot of what he says. I personally tend to stay away from psychic stuff but I'm glad you bought a book in a metaphysical bookstore and are exploring more esoteric forms of spirituality.
